Benchmarking results

I needed to build a copy of for an upcoming
presentation on the open source desktop, so I figured I'd also run the
benchmark script in an effort to contribute to an estimation of build

Of course, the presentation is scheduled for Thursday, so I was in a
bit of a rush: I ran the build at a nice of -20, alone on the system.
(devd,syslogd,usbd,sshd,sendmail,cron,moused only)

I must've screwed something up: my uncached build time was 30 minutes,
23.62 seconds. The cached build took all of 0.9 seconds. This on an
otherwise unremarkable 2002 Toshiba Satellite 1955-S801.

I hope these numbers aren't too irrelevant for your benchmarks, I
would've really hated to waste that extra 9/10ths of a second to test
the ccache =)
